I love all types of music so it is hard to pick the best out of that. If i had to pick one i would say Johnny Cash. Just because his music had a different sound to it. But Cash is just one of many that has changed to now adays music. But was the first one that came out with a different style of music on the guitar.

Gary Moore absolutely smoked Redhouse. That was one clip I'd considered putting up, but Parisienne is a personal favorite.

Saw that Gary Moore clip a few months ago. I was skeptical that a white guy could pull it off but he really owned it. Some of those bends are insane.

My list....

Thurston Moore
Lee Ranaldo
J Mascis
Dudes from Slint
Tom Morello
and Caarrlos Monttoyyaa

I listen to many kinds of music, however all my favorite and most influential guitarists are of the metal variety. (Though some containing side-projects that stray from that

Sami Yli-Sirnio (Kreator, Waltari, Barren Earth)
Marty Friedman (Solo, Megadeth)
Bill Steer (Napalm Death, Carcass, Firebird)
Emppu Vuorinen (Darkwoods My Betrothed, Nightwish)

They all have a common theme. They are very melodic metal guitarists with incredible technique, who avoid cliches. (such as excessive sweep picking)

you can feel emotion flawlessly in their playing, whether it's just a basic shred lick or a well-composed and thought-out solo. My favorites, easily.

John squire in the Stone Roses. Understated by guitar hero standards, but he was the man in the late 80's.

Jimmy Page
Jimi Hendrix
Les Paul
And lastly... Willie Nelson (he can play just 1 chord and you can tell it's him)

Tom Morello- of Rage Against The Machine

Good song, listen to The Boss at :50 sec mark
Tom's solo is at 5:45

posted on Mar, 31 2009 @ 06:37 PM
Oh I would have to go with Santana and Ace Frehley.

Jeff Beck listen to Beckology & particularly to his first band the Tridents from the very very very early 60's & see just where ole Hendrix got all his icing on the cake stuff from, Jeff was doing all that ear candy smoke & mirrors stuff 3 to four years before Jimi's first lp. Ok I know this thread says "Favorite as in just 1 but i'll add this anyways, I'll take George Harrisons & Lowell Georges slide playing anyday over all the so called Southern Rock Gods.

w00t first post on BTS - and it's sure to get panned :bash:

Prince!! All time fave - this is the only vid i can find these days, his lawyers are always on the mark at removing his content sadly, but this guy is truly a genius. I would prefer to show you his "Joy in Repetition" live solo or something but this does the business all the same.

I love ALL the other guys on stage too - but Prince owns this. (OK OK George, Tom et all are all legends, but you HAVE to give Mr Prince Rogers Nelson his dues for this awesome solo)

You can't 'learn' the emotion in intonation Prince finds here:

I do, of course, agree with many other selections made earlier in this great thread, and may later return to list more

My favorite is Stevie Ray Vaughn - headphones, close eyes, and go to heaven.

Other favs:
Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes
Jimi Hendrix was pretty good too
John Frusciante of the Chili Peppers
Duane Allman of The Allman Brothers
J of White Zombie
Vernon Reed of Living Colour
oh and Dimebag Darrel of Pantera fame.

I could keep going, but I'm happy with this list

EDIT: I forgot Jerry Cantrell.
